Now that we're able to access the pre-release material on the OCR website and presume the kind of questions they may ask. I was wondering does anybody have an idea of the type of questions they may ask??

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get more responses. Hopefully someone will be able to get back to you

I was thinking, based on the pre-release, gender and ethnicity! We haven't studied the pre-release yet in class, although i have looked at it! Where abouts are you in the course? For both exams ?

Hi,

The pre-release suggests that the topic overall will be linked in with working class due to the essay we have to study being on working class fathers. Hence you should revise for the topics that easily link in with this like class,gender and age identities in particular.

but it also mentions ethnicity too due to the researchers looking specifically at how different ethnic groups look at the role of fathering

Ethnicity was on the last exam paper so I would focus more on class and gender personally
